    The feud against Red Rooster was legendary.

    I know I speak for everyone at the shed when I tell you thank you. Thank you for letting us all know that the Brawler is alive and doing well. He reminds me of Ricky Henderson - a phenomenal athlete that (while no longer able to compete in the big leagues) was willing to take his talent to the smaller leagues and continue to dazzle spectators.

    Funny, I was just reading about another aging superstar that was struggling. Alex Rodriguez.

    It's always hard to say goodbye when you've reached the pinnacle of athletic achievement.

    I wish BB the best. Hopefully he busts up some brooklyn hipsters.

    I vividly remember the fist Brawler match I ever saw. It's so clear to me it's as if it happened yesterday. He was wrestling some guy in some arena in some town somewhere. And my grandpa turned to me and said something about something or someone. Ahh memories. It was fantastic.

    He was given that gimmick after Vince McMahon learned about the time a young Brawler struck out an in his prime Babe Ruth with his wicked knuckleball.

    Was he smoking a 10 cent cigar? A lot of wrestlers starting wearing old, dirty clothes for ring attire after BB made it cool. It could have been Dean Ambrose.

    Come to think of it, yes. Yes, he was. Do you think Kurt Cobain may have also aped the Brawlers fashion?

    Judging by the official in the background, I have no doubt this match was called right down the middle.

    Vince McMahon isn't always the most accurate or sensitive when it comes to gimmicks.
